Description

As you come back under the chair lift you'll have to traverse for a little bit but once you go over the ridge, the line underneath the chair is great fun. From family groups to seasoned shredders there is something for everyone under here. The face is wide enough for you to pick your turns whatever your level but if you stay to the sides you can keep it steep and knock off a few cheeky little drops. If you take the Dou des Lanches chair up, it is a great way to pick your line and check which drops you want to take on your way back down.
